Yes, I know there's already a thread for the named creatures, but what about the unnamed ones? Should we take it upon ourselves to name them all? It would be less confusing.
All the ones I can name off my head are:
[The general ones]
Seccom Masada
[Lesser known]
Steve "Leif" Kareha (WOOH!)
Big Red
No Face/Blue girls
MerutoMaro (>>187)
FC Lizardmen
Kamakurako (Igloo girl)
Mafuraako (Hat-and-Scarf girl)
The Alley Demon
The Thing with the Quivering Jaw (I'm all for keeping his name like this)
...Leg Vomit Bean Shit Man. (I love that name)
Aztec Rave Monkey
Tokuto-kun (Blood-coming-out-of-his-head-man)
The cat (The one on top of the mall.)

For things like this
should we come up with names now to avoid further confusion?
First, I want to know if we should start naming the unnamed ones. Then, I want to hear suggestions.
Is this okay?
Edit: Awesome, so it's a definite.
[List of newly named characters]
Pier Monster
Dave Spector
Edit: We should also vote on new names. If I see that more people prefer a name than oppose it, I'll add it to the list. Otherwise, they'll be pending.

[Pending list]
Meimu& Iru-jon
Yami Bouzu
Severed Heads
Eye Guy
Shikyuu [Uterus]
Eye Vine
Psy-Guy/Cube Guru
OH U (Pffffft. Should we really refer to him as the OH U picture? I'm all for it.)
Buyo Buyo/Organoid Jr.
Boss, Grunts
Eagle Jelly
Salem Tree
Shadow Pariah
Watching Crowd
Nasu Man
For the "O"-man near "E"-man :
Joe Perry
Dr. O
Big O
Mini O

I like the idea. And I'll contribute some:

I call the dude in the picture Okamoto-san, because his face is similar to the works of the Japanese abstract artist Taro Okamoto. :3
...Yeah, I'm an art nerd.

>Leg Vomit Bean Shit Man

...Who is that?
I'm guessing the thing in the background behind Uboa?

Also, I think these guys in the picture need names. I find them cute. ;__;

Add the Pier Monster to the list- it's that magenta, eel-like creature with the two green eyes at the docks.

The thing in the background with the three eyes that you see before the Thing With the Quivering Jaw needs a name, too. (It's the black or red thing with red tentacles. It changes colors depending on whether you pass five or ten of those eye-monster things prior to going to the manhole northeast of Shitai.)

Personally, I'm not sure - I am afraid it might become too complicated for newcomers.

When I first came here, I was very confused by all the names, and most of time I didn't know what everyone was talking about.

So, to finish.. My opinion is, we could name the more 'important' characters, but let's not go for giving a name for every single character.

His in-game label is "Kareha". A forum in-joke doesn't take precedence over the name designated by Kikiyama, sorry to say. I mean, do guys honestly think that "Steve 'Leif'" fits the feel of Kikiyama's creations...?

>> No.253   [Delete]   [Edit]

I thought Madotsuki was the only character that has a definite name in-game..
Every other name seems to be made up by the fandom.

Since there's no real plot structure to the game, Madotsuki's the only major character, in my opinion. If the other less-known creatures have fitting names to describe them, there will probably be less confusion to newcomers.

>> No.254   [Delete]   [Edit]

I'm thinking that we could call the guy in the topic pic "Picasso". Wait, what IS is/her/its name according to the in-game data, anyways?

>> No.255   [Delete]   [Edit]

Sigh. For the LAST time, there is no "in-game data" that gives a name to ANYONE except for Madotsuki. Every other name came from the Japanese community.

>> No.256   [Delete]   [Edit]

I just checked my game and it has no name. It's just "EV0032", which is the default name RPG Maker gives to every event. The only place I've seen him called Kareha is http://www7.plala.or.jp/syami/zukan.htm , which is a site with fanart.

Tokuto-kun. :/

ALSO! Some names according to that website.

Goppa-kun -> Blood-barfy-guy in the footprint area with the little button.
Aka no Ousama -> The face thing after Kyukyu-kun. (It means "Red King." Hmm...)
Wapuman -> The blue/green guy in the sky garden that disappears when you come close to him.
Yami bouzu -> "Pissipissini." It means "black monk."
Batsu -> Vine eyeball things in the vine desert.
Zettai Kami -> Aztec Monkey. It means "Never God."
Tsuribito-san -> Fisherman.
Kubi nashi kyojin -> One-eyed "headless" monsters.
Numachi-Onna -> Faceless girls. "Swamp woman."
Dave Spector -> Picasso guy in the monochrome desert. "Deebu Supekutaa."
Baird Private SHAA -> Eyeball guy in numbers world.
UNKOHEA Eater -> Poop hair monster.
Jiji -> The cat on the roof of the mall.
Kurage Juushoku -> Jellyfish. "Jellyfish priest."
Pirori -> Shadow guys in the barracks.
Kodomo -> Midget.

Of course we could simplify a lot of these.

There's also the crying leg-guy on Mars, whose name is Tasei-san. It only means "Mr. Mars".

Also, what about the freakish people in the pictures besides Leg Vomit Bean Shit Man? The guy with the huge head, the thin dude with a backwards-facing hand and a hole like Monoko's in his stomach. Also, the eye-pillar-thing that reminds me a bit of Tasei-san. I think they should get names as well.

Also, what about the two heads cut in half that act as doorways in the Monochrome world near Shitai? Halfhead-kuns? Or the round blob that forms a face when you stab it in the sewers? Beanbag? Or the blue guy on the floor of the kill-room in the Numbers World? Inexplicable Blue Face Dude? Or the falling/flying thing on the stairway to the sky garden? Or the teleporting thing in that park-like place, or the people staring out off a cliff in the same area, or the evil-looking tree in the same place as the blue girls?

Giving names to everything in YN is futile and pointless, but damned if it isn't fun!

I vote for the singing man in the mall to be named Counselor. Madotsuki would see a mental health clinic in all likelihood, and he sings a soothing melody. No one in her dreams talk, but soothing melodies come from his mouth, as if to comfort her.

Dr. Song, no. It sounds way too much like a musician and gives the wrong idea. The place also gives that small office feel of a mental facility more than the surgical feel of a dental clinic. Look at the comfortable furniture in both rooms!

Finally finished the character chart. Took me all day to go to each area, screencap, and paste and such. I never realized how many characters YN had until now, and even still there are so many that are unnamed.
Didn't add general characters like Uboa, Poniko, Monoe, and Monoko-- added Masada for filler space :\
I left unnamed characters blank, and added the names to some of them. I will change the name if there is disagreement and/or there are at least 5 new names added.

Another thing, though-- I'm kind of iffy on Wapuman as Organoid, and would rather is stay as Organoid, since it just seems to fit more. :\
Not so sure about Aka no Ousama, UNKOHEA Eater, Zettai Kami, Tsuribito-san, Kubi nashi kyojin, Baird Private SHAA, Yami Bouzu, Goppa-kun, and Kaonashi. Remember, the names may not be "official from the Japanese Fanbase" from that site, and could be names that the artist came up with. If we name it something Japanese, are we really doing it to make things easier to remember? Why name it Japanese?

They look like some kind of musical performer. Judging from the haircuts, they look like... Rock? Heavy Metal? I don't know, I'm turning into a hikkikomori like Madotsuki (Which is also why I promised myself I'd take a break from the computer next week) -- and I'm not into America's media society anymore. (Fuck Hannah Montana and that shit. I'm gonna go listen to Touhou remixes >U.)

>> No.297   [Delete]   [Edit]

I think we shouldn't just leech all the names from the Japanese fans. They're not official. That's a bit weeaboo and could cause confusion. Simple english names will help everyone, especially new people, understand who we're talking about.
Also, do you call all the Pokémon by their Japanese names? There's a reason why a lot of them are changed. And that is official, and there is a large difference between English and Japanese names, but if the words refer to what the Pokémon is, then it all works out. Cubone had bones, Bayleef has leafs, Rhidon is a rhinoceroses, ect.

The same way you access Monoe. Find that hut with two entrances and Dave Spector meandering around the area. Stab Dave and go in the other cave instead of the one that leads to Monoe. (I can't remember which was which.) You'll travel across a monochrome fiery landscape to this shed. If Madotsuki goes in the shed, the severed heads fly down and hover oddly around the roof. The place reminds me of some kind of industrial park and that red tentacle can be seen in the background.

The point is that it's hard to learn so many Japanese names. It's easier to tell what someone's talking about and less confusing when creatures are given a simple English name that refers to what they are/look like.

I always thought this creature was some kind of king for the species of Uboa, and the things in the sewers like Leg Vomit Bean Shit Man and his pals are ambassadors/high-ranked people, while Uboa and the Alley Demon are simply... normal people?

Also probably obvious, but shouldn't the eye/arm creature in the eyeball world be called Medamaude...?

Ugh, thank you. I was going to say so myself, but I've been out all day.

Please continue naming characters who have often changing names and those who do not have names.

And, about the Faceless girls... let's stick to "Faceless/No Face" or "Blue" girls, please. People keep saying "oh, they're chelsea smile fasldfjalsj something-onna" but honestly, they don't need these fancy-ass names. Most of the time they're referred to as either 'faceless' or 'blue' and usually someone understands it. Okay?

Alright guys, I think we should get around to clearing up the Pending list.
Should we keep Pissipissini, Goppa-kun, Batsu, Dave Spector, Jiji, Kurage Juushoku, and Pirori as new names?

As for me: Kind of Iffy on Goppa-kun and Batsu, but they're the only names out. Everything else is fine by me.

Just incase no one can remember-
Pissipissini- red eyed blob in the Dark World
Goppa-kun- Blood spitting monsters on the footprint trail
Batsu- Plants with Eyes in Wilderness A
Dave Spector- OP pic
Jiji- It's that cat on top of the Mall.
Kurage Juushoku- The ringing Jellyfish
Pirori- Shadow men that live in the Barracks Settlement.

>> No.343   [Delete]   [Edit]



Pissipissini - I don't like this one all that much. It's kind of silly, and doesn't fit very well.
Goppa-kun - There's nothing wrong with this one, actually. I would drop the '-kun', though. The name could be used to describe all the monsters, and if someone would want to talk about a specific one, colours could be used. Like 'the blue Goppa', 'the Yellow Goppa'.
Batsu - Not sure about this.
Dave Spector - I absolutely love this one. It fits perfectly.
Jiji - Cute. It's either this or 'Black Cat'.
Kurage Juushoku - I think I like 'Death Chime' more, but 'Kurage Juushoku' isn't that bad. A little long, but okay.
Pirori - I would leave them as 'shadow men'. They're easily recognizable by that, and I see no reason to complicate it further.

Well, people do call Kyukyu as "Rubrub" a lot. Not that it's that much different...


Pissipissini- I think Yami Bouzu sounds less...random.
Goppa-kun- I really like "Goppa". It kinda...sounds like the right name. Or something.
Batsu - I'm not able to relate this name to the plants
Dave Spector - Totally yes
Jiji - Cute, but same thing as Batsu, I can't relate it to the cats in any way...
Kurage Juushoku - We could call them Death Jellyfish since everyone knows them as Jellyfish-guys
Pirori - Shadow Men sounds cooler

>> No.346   [Delete]   [Edit]

Sounds like we'll be dropping 'Pissipissini' off the list. Aw, I liked that name, since whenever I go around the Dark World I always end up stopping because this thing is in my way, and it PISSES me off.
Goppa and Dave Spector will be on the newly named list.
As for the rest, they will be dropped from pending-- and Kurage Juushoku will remain as 'Jellyfish', since it's the most recognizeable name for it.

Anything else?
Do you want me to put all three names on the pending list? Or just pick one to go.

I took the chart Meri made and put some names/suggestions on it so that I wouldn't have to upload multiple images. Some are mere ideas-- don't yell at me if you don't like them.

I won't touch upon the self-explanatory names in the image, but here's some origins of the names.

-Meimu and Irujon are both different words for "illusion". When you interact with them an illusory copy of it follows you.
-The box-like thing that takes you to the Eye Guys looks like a totem, obviously.
-I thought the guy in the place Big Red sends you looks like a psychic, so I thought Psy-Guy would be a good name.
-Datai means "miscarriage". I'm not great with Japanese so if I'm wrong about any translations don't hesitate to say so. People say these things look like pregnant women with their heads cut off, so that's what I thought of.
-I think those guys in candle world look like they're made of wax.
-Kaleido-san is named after kaleidoscope, obviously. When I first saw it I thought of the Sharingan from that anime all the kids from where I live are obsessed with- I think it means "Kaleidoscope eyes".
Dali-san is named after the surrealist artist Salvador Dali.
-The thing that gives you Buyo Buyo must have a connection of some sort to the effect, right? We could just name it Buyo Buyo, like how Medamaude gives you the Medamaude effect.

Hurry, Nowhere Men, Goppa, Eye Vine and some others added as suggested. I added Red Man (named by Madotsuki's Closet) as well.

Dave Spector is an American celebrity who is very popular in Japan. Likely one of the Japanese YN fans thought that the character had a huge gaijin nose and eyes, which makes the name even more hilarious, in my opinion.

I say we keep it.

I've never heard of him, so I just Google Image'd him. The hairstyle is amusingly very similar.

O-Sensei was my primary suggestion, as sensei can mean doctor.

Gaijin is derogatory, politically incorrect and banned from television in Japan. It is used for all people of non-Japanese blood. The usage is comparible to Nazism.
Edit: Not that it matters on an imageboard.

Gabugabu (to guzzle) can at least be the nickname of Onsen-san. I really think he's drinking hot water through his tube, and his mouth seems to be swallowing. He turns blue when dead, and of course stops drinking. His body cools down?

Again, "e" Man would be good, with the "" for grammatical correctness, to show it is an unusual spelling.

I know, it's just a fact I like to mention for the gullible weeaboos who would allow people to call them that.

I don't think another name for it is really necessary, but it'd be fine to have a nickname, as long as other people know what you're talking about. People call it Hot-Spring-san also, so whatever. XD

That thing gets to me so much. I think he, out of all the random creatures, is the most pathetic. It seems like he's looking back at his trunk appendage and crying over it; he looks like he's terrified of what's going on with his own body but can't do anything to stop it(because he has no arms, and his body is too small to support the weight of his head and that thing coming off of it).

Not to mention that the music in his little room is freaking scary.

I actually like the music in his room. It doesn't strike me as being scary at all.

I'm late, but as for the name Jiji, it probably came from the name of the cat in Kiki's Delivery Service.

It fits to a certain degree, since witches are often seen with black cats and Jiji is the only example I can think of that has a name. It's cute, though it does seem kind of random.

血吐入道 translated in Google language from both Japanese to French and Japanese to English reveals
"吐trousseau blood". Apparently "吐" is a character that can't be translated.(at least by Google since i don't speak Japanese).However "trousseau" is a syndrome described as "a medical sign found in certain cancers that is associated with venous thrombosis and hypercoagulability".It's associated with carcinomas of the lung and pancreas.

>> No.520   [Delete]   [Edit]

that's exactly what i thought.usually spitting blood aka coughing blood comes from the lungs. lung cancer? or a certain infection since he does resemble a stomach
so maybe Poniko died of cancer and Uboa, as simple and cliche as it may sound, probably resembles death or just the disease itself

From what it seems, "Cancer" could also be called "Onyudo", which is a typical legendary japanese monster.

The resemblance is very small, though, other than being a huge black thing, they share no resemblance. I'm all for calling it "Cancer".

You guys do know that Google translate is like, a hilariously bad translator, right? It's never accurate and that was probably not an accurate translation.

That being said, Cancer doesn't sound like a name to me and it's a little dumb. If it has to be named, I vote for Trousseau just because it's silly.

Though to be honest, I think it's named after the monster in >>522, so also going with the translation >>518 gave, 血吐入道 means blood-barfing/blood-spitting giant Japanese monster Onyudo thing. There.

There is no point to this thread, if anything giving the characters "official" names subtracts from the whole point of the game.

Remember when Masada was "The Space paino man" the Toriningen where "Bird Girls" or "Harpy" the game was full of life and mystery.

Giving all of them names only subtracts from the game as a whole.

The Uboa monster guy should be known as just that.

Hey people. Im a YN veteran here, ever since about it came out, and I was VERY interested in exploring the game and getting all effects and naming EVERY creature. I made a list for what I named the creatures between 04' - 06' or around those years. Just my opinion on the names, I like abstract concepts and symbolism, so here goes nothing. I'll work my way down in terms of popularity among the fandom.

Uboa = To be honest, I couldn't think of a name for this guy, so I just went with "Frightful"
Madostuki = I always knew she was Madostuki, but I called her "Window" for some reason.
Poniko = Beauty
Masada = The Isolated Musician
Monoe = Sister
Monoko = Disfigurement
KyuKyu = Abstract
FACE = Didn't name it, he looked like a pattern or static more than a creature.
Toriningen = Guardians
The Thing With The Quivering Jaw = Entrapment
Shitai = Accidental
Big Red = Hunger
Steve "Leif" Kareha = Took me a long time to find out this bugger exists, but I named him "Travel"

I found most, if not all creatures, but those were all the symbolized names. All other names were random things I could think of, like Shikyuu = Watching or Tokuto-kun = Drip Drip.

If I had photoshop and free time I could make my own version of the chart, but nobody cares, all the names are decided (and quite nice, might I add).

Actually, you act like a jerkass half the time with little to no tolerance for other people's opinions, so even though the (possible) troll was a little harsh it wasn't necessarily uncalled for. :\

This is a little late, but zero tolerance is something I've come to expect from everyone else. This community feels no different than any other chan.

The first step to make me lower my guard and try to act nice is to stop attacking me at random, especially with images of my own savior.

Edit: I don't propose the names of the Toriningen as definitive, but more like an identification code. That is why they are numbers. It is also as simple as most names that originated in Japan. For example, Poniko is better Romanized as Ponyko, meaning ponytail kid.

Even though whoever wrote #870 was overdoing it, I'd say listing toriningen by assigned integer number is slightly less creative than most stuff here.

And you've been complaining very recently how you are horribly depressed and need medication because no therapy in the world would help you, such is the bottomless abyss of your despair.

And here you are. Assigning numerals to the toriningen. And claiming admitting any kind of uncertainty is frailty. And mentioning Jesus Christ when in opposition to His precepts, in every way I can think of.

You must have read the statement you responded to in order to sensibly respond to it.

>> No.982   [Delete]   [Edit]

Oh wow, you're right, you got me good.

You're banned.

I'm not suggesting we stop calling him FACE, but because I'm freaking scared of him and because of what he supposedly resembles/represents according to most theories...I'm going to call 'im FUCKHEAD

Ok, so if you havent seen on /uboa/, i thought about naming this guy "Boushihebi". It means "eye snake" in japanese

What do ya think?

>> No.1694   [Delete]   [Edit]


From what I know "boushi" does not mean eye. Me is eye, and from what I've gotten from other sites "boushi" is a term for a late older sister. Hebi does mean snake, though.

Can I ask where you got "boushi" from?

Aww, the ghosts get no names?

I fell in love with that little blue one ever since I noticed that he follows you, so I named him Marco.

C'mon, guys. Marco deserves a better name!

what about E-Man?

I think he's fine how he is.

I agree that english names would be easier to remember. Many of them work well enough just transliterating Jp names, though (ie I heard Kyuukyu-kun referred to on another board as "Mr. Squeaks", and "Mr. Bucket" and "Mr. Corpse" work well enough for those characters.) In this light, I'd suggest that the orange thing be called "Seahorse", or maybe "Dragon" (as that would be a literal translation of "tatsu").

>Implying everyone needs Mr. in front of their name to be memorable, and that KyuKyu, Tokuto, and Shitai don't already have concrete names.

>implying that "Mr." is to make them memorable rather than simply attempting to translate the honorific

Oh, FFS. If you're going to argue with me, do it on the new thread, because I said the same fucking thing there. I assumed you had responded to the post on the new thread, and responded without looking, so half of that is what I get for not paying attention, but >>917 go argue with me RIGHT, dammit.

Sage because it's already on the top and whole post is about NOT bumping this thread.

I actually did see that other post before responding here. I never intended to argue with you, I was just saying that it bothers me when people make up names for characters that already have popualrly used names.

I'm sorry if I missed the point you were trying to make.

>> No.2469   [Delete]   [Edit]

Oh. Sorry.

The point I was trying to make is translating the names directly could be useful for persons new to the fandom, or the (admittedly scarce) segment of the fandom that is not also weeaboo.

I meant no negative connotation to "argument", as I consider them useful.

Sage still, because I don't want to bump the old thread. Pic saved, because seriously, who can keep being irritated when you bust that out at them?
